What's on Tap at Rockopelli 2018


2016's Indiana Brewer's Cup Gold-Medal winning American-style IPA is hazy and double dry-hopped with refreshing tangerine notes and lasting finish.    Hops: Horizon, Citra, Mosaic, Simcoe, Calypso, Apollo, Amarillo, Chinook

Orange is the new wheat

Crisp, zesty, and refreshing. The citrus aroma, light to medium body, and tangy finish are this beer's signature. This is accomplished by adding the equivalent of 120 oranges per barrel, which perfectly coalesce with the wheat and barley base.


Goldblaz Golden Ale is light-to-medium bodied, crisp and mildly fruity and is sure to become as familiar with Regionites as the classic film, A Christmas Story, based on Jen Shepard's Hammond roots.   Hops: Horizon, Glacier
